Mid Day Best on the McKenzie

A plethora of insects are still emerging on the Mckenzie and Middle fork of the Willamette Rivers. Good numbers of Blue Winged Olives, Lesser Green Drakes, small Orange Caddis, October Caddis and even a few Short Winged Stoneflies remain important bugs to consider. Despite a bit more water in our local rivers fishing has remained good. Concentrate your efforts on the warmest part of the day, usually in the 11-4pm range. As we get deeper into Fall that window is likely to shrink even less, nonetheless focus on the warmth of the day.
